Episode 6: Grantchester

Summary

When the leader of a student CND group, Rachel Bromilow, falls to her death from a college building while staging a daring protest, Will and Geordie discover her demise is not as accidental as it first appears. They must infiltrate the world of campus politics to find her killer. Detective drama set in the 1950s, starring Robson Green

Review

Banning the bomb is the latest thorny political issue snagging Will and Geordie, with the vicar annoyed when the DI calls a student CND group “uptight pinkos”. It really is a wonder that these two have managed to remain friends, as they seem fated to a falling-out in every episode. But at least they still have murder cases to unite them – the latest victim being the lead protestor for nuclear disarmament, who has fallen to her death from a college building. 

Undergraduates are perennially depicted as smug and superior in whodunnits, and the suspects on the police’s radar here certainly don’t break the mould. But which of them might be both conceited and a killer?
